Fodor's Expert Review Akasaka

$$ Ala Moana Japanese

Step inside this tiny sushi bar tucked between the strip clubs behind the Ala Moana Hotel, and you'll swear you're in an out-of-the-way Edo neighborhood in some indeterminate time. Don't be deterred by its dodgy neighbors or its reputation for inconsistent service. Greeted with a cheerful "Iraishaimase!" (Welcome!), sink down at a diminutive table or perch at the handful of seats at the sushi bar. It's safe to let the sushi chefs here decide (omakase-style) or you can go for the grilled specialties, such as scallop battayaki (grilled in butter). This one's where locals go when they want the real deal. Tucked in near the Republik, it's also a good spot for before or after the concert.
